This post is about the "Absecon Skate Park". I never knew or even heard about this place. People that I went to school with supposedly built it. I was told they would grab any wood they could find and drag out to an abandon tennis court in the woods. Steve took me back there and I took some pictures of the area.The area used to be a community pool or a private club for the Absecon Shores, Im not positive. I asked my mom for some info about it and she said in the 60s it was popular. She said she never went but a lot of her friends worked there. When the bay was at high tide they would open a gate using this lever to allow water into the pool area. When the pool was filled, they would close the gate.
I kicked some dirt away and found this depth warning.
I guess this was the area everyone would lay out, eat lunch, whatever.
here are some rotting stairs along the side
We walked to the back through all these weeds and trees and found this rusted fence. We walked around till we found an entrance and walked in.
some of the ramps were still up. It was pretty awesome... If anyone has any stories about this place please post them. Im very interested in learning more about it. All the years living in Absecon, this was the first time I ever went there and checked it out.
